Laser technology has changed the medical world. Light energy can be harnessed to perform delicate procedures with less risk of damage to tissue in surgeries and dental work, as well as in cosmetic treatments. At Arcadia Wellness Center, we offer advanced options in laser skin treatments and radiofrequency energy procedures that can improve the aesthetics of your skin, but there are a wide variety of options available. Here is a breakdown of some of the laser skin treatments we offer to determine which one is right for you.
eCO2 Laser Treatments
Our Lutronic eCO2 laser can perform both deep and surface ablation for skin resurfacing. The eCO2 laser treatments can provide the most dramatic results when it comes to addressing aging issues and imperfections on the skin. The light energy can remove dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. The benefits of the eCO2 laser include:
- Diminished lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Reduce the appearance of scars
- Tighten skin on the face and neck
eCO2 laser treatments can create incredible results in 2-3 sessions over several months. There is some skin recovery time, from 1-2 days for light surface treatments to up to 10 days with deep ablation. The treatments last about half an hour and use advanced technology to improve comfort.
IPL or Photo Facial Treatments
Intense pulsed light or IPL is the technology behind the photo facial. This treatment is used to remove darker skin cells or capillaries that cause spot spots, rosacea, birthmarks, spider veins and other skin colorations. The treatment can also improve sun-damaged skin. Photo facials do not require downtime, but the skin will be a little red after the treatment. Dark spots and spider veins can begin fading or disappearing within a week or two after treatment.
Skin Tightening Treatments
Radiofrequency or RF skin tightening treatments can give your skin a lift without surgery. RF treatments stimulate collagen production to improve the elasticity in the skin for a more youthful appearance. The treatments are not painful and only last about 15-20 minutes with no downtime needed. A series of treatments over a few months is recommended to obtain the best results.
Skin Resurfacing and Laser Hair Removal
We also offer non-ablative laser skin resurfacing with less downtime or recovery time required than with the eCO2 laser. Skin resurfacing can shrink pores, even skin tone and improve the texture of the skin while removing skin flaws. There is some downtime – the skin needs 24-hours to recover before you can wear makeup or put anything on the skin.
If you are ready to stop shaving or waxing, give laser hair removal a try. We can permanently remove hair from the legs, armpits, face, back or bikini area with our laser hair removal treatments.
